NATIONAL MUSEUM BLOEMFONTEIN
The National Museum – a natural history, cultural history and art museum – was established in 1877 and is a Declared Cultural Institution, which resorts under the Department of Arts and Culture and is governed by a council. The mission of the National Museum is to provide heritage resources and an enjoyable experience to all people through quality research, conservation, education and exhibitions.
The National Museum dates back to 1877, when its collections and displays comprised mainly rarities from around the world. Since then the Museum has developed into an institution of international stature, focusing on natural history, cultural history and art. Intensive research is carried out in these varied disciplines, and valuable and important collections have been established. Through its displays and education programmes, the Museum renders a public service to its diverse audiences, engaging them in enjoyable and enlightening experiences and enriching the learning opportunities of all individuals.
